Scott Street Westbound Close Until Sept.

This is a release from the City of Ottawa:

Starting Monday, July 15, Scott Street westbound will be closed from Bayview Station Road to Parkdale Avenue, with a detour on Bayview Station Road to Burnside and Parkdale avenues. There will be no impact to the eastbound lanes. The closure will be in effect until early September.

The closure is required to facilitate work on the Scott Street Protected Intersections project which includes the renewal of the existing watermain, adding protected intersections at Parkdale and Carruthers avenues and Bayview Station Road, improvements to pedestrian and cycling facilities, and removing the transit lanes along Scott Street from Holland Avenue to Bayview Station Road.

Slowdowns are expected through the construction zone and residents may wish to find alternate routes where possible.

    The city has decided to close a section of the road that the replacement buses would otherwise use while the LRT between Tunney’s Pasture and Rideau is closed for two weeks for ‘corrective maintenance work’.

    Does anyone within the senior ranks of city management even think about the impact on traffic flow of what, on the surface may appear to be two independent decisions, but are in fact co-dependent? Seriously!
